Creative Young Weavers
2nd October 2020
Creative Young Weavers is a weaving project for primary schools linked to the silk industry of Sudbury. Sudbury has a unique history of silk production going back over 300 years and continues to produce silk cloth with a reputation around the world for excellence. Pupils worked with textile artist Frin Arnold to participate in individual activities to create woven samples.
In the first workshop, we learnt about our silk heritage and the processes within the industry, looking at artefacts and photos. The children used silk selvedge to create their own weaving example. In the second session, the children presented facts and information to Frin, our workshop leader, and created their own mood boards.
